To be honest, given the law in California making a distinction between revisions to the Constitution which cannot be effected by initiative action and amendments to it which can be, I think the Court had little choice. The people pushing the initiative can certainly now sue and try to get a ruling allowing it to be brought as an initiative in a future election, but they are unlikely to prevail. They need to regroup and focus on elections to the state legislature, then push the revision process there as the law requires.

I wish them well. At some point, though, if your oppressor is unwilling to hear you (e.g., dilutes your vote by recognizing millions of invading foreigners--effectively denying you representation), you list your grievances in a public declaration of independence and forcibly drive them back.
